I'm sorry I missed the last meeting, so I might be repeating something
that was already said, but... I think it would be helpful if the
requirement "headings" were stated as requirements. That way we could
look at the list of requirements and it would make sense. As an example,
we have:

----
6.17 Cite datasets

Provide a way to specify information required for data citation (e.g.,
dataset authors, title, publication year, publisher, persistent identifier)
----

I would modify this to be something like:

----
6.17 Provide full citation information for datasets

Currently missing from DCAT are:
 - full range of identifiers,
 - dates,
 - contributors and
 - resources supported by [DataCite]
----

(I copied from the use case - that list of missing may not be correct.
This is just an example.)

Some requirements are already worded this way, like:

6.3 Create a way to list the profiles implemented by a dataset or a
specific distribution

If this makes sense, I may be able to make a number of suggestions
before the next meeting.
